At CES 2012, NXP unveiled its ultra-compact, high-precision SOI-MEMS-based frequency synthesizer as an alternative to quartz crystal-based timing devices. These timing devices target communications equipment using Gigabit Ethernet, USB, PCI-Express and S-ATA, plus CPU timing, memory and control in consumer electronics devices.
NXP’s latest automotive audio amplifiers are built on its SOI-based ABCD technology, and enable an uninterrupted audio experience during sudden supply voltage drops down to 6V in hybrid electric vehicles, micro-hybrids, mild hybrids, and other cars using start-stop systems. The Class-D TDF8530 offers concert-hall sound, while the TDF8546 Best Efficiency quad Class-AB amplifier cuts power dissipation […]
The leading producer of SOI wafers, Soitec was named NXP’s Best Supplier for Front End Materials & Equipment. NXP was one of the first in the industry to use SOI. The relationship with Soitec dates back to 1995, when the two companies began work together on the development of the (then Philips’) breakthrough SOI-based ABCD […]
NXP‘s continues its line of SOI-based automotive CAN transceivers with the next-gen TJA1048 for automotive engine, body control and gateway apps. SOI enables extremely low emission and high immunity against EMI, and protects the bus pins against transients in the automotive environment.
Guenter Reiniger, Marketing Manager for NXP’s Automotive Sensors, explains how SOI helps eliminate the need for external components in a new magnetic sensor family. Advanced Substrate News (ASN): NXP recently announced the KMA210, the first in a new family of magnetoresistive (MR) sensor chips. What is it used for? Guenter Reiniger (GR): The KMA210 is […]
NXP has introduced the GreenChip SSL4101T controller IC for Solid State LED lighting power supplies. Based on SOI, its industry-leading performance includes Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 20 percent, a high Power Factor (PF) of .99, and high efficiency of 94 percent.
(Image courtesy: NXP) New GreenChip power ICs from NXP leverage SOI for the lowest standby capability in the industry, reaching levels below 10mW. They’re designed for adapters for mobile devices such as cell phone chargers, tablets and notebooks, as well as major home appliances or white goods. GreenChip TEA1721 has two internal silicon dies […]
NXP‘s new SSL21081 is a highly efficient, high-voltage LED driver IC for compact retrofit lamps. It’s based on NXP‘s EZ-HV-SOI GreenChip™ technology.
With the new LPC11C22 and LPC11C24 integrated CAN transceiver microcontroller solution, NXP opens the door for widespread adoption of low-cost CAN in an increasing variety of industrial and automation applications for factories, buildings and in the home. An SiP solution, the CAN transceiver is built on SOI.
Leveraging its SOI-based A-BCD mixed-signal HV process technology, NXP’s announced: • the ASL1010NTK and ASL1010PHN, driver IC solutions designed for vehicle LED headlights and tail lights, the industry’s first to integrate critical functionality such as temperature feedback, fault detection, control for dimming, and short circuit protection. • Shipment of its two millionth FlexRay transceiver – […]
